Atsushi Nomi (能見 篤史 Nōmi Atsushi?, born May 28, 1979 in Izushi, Izushi District (present: Toyooka), Hyogo, Japan) is a Nippon Professional Baseball pitcher for the Hanshin Tigers in Japan's Central League.

Nohmi is a 5 ft 9 inch left-handed pitcher. His fast balls were clocked at an average of 144 kph, max at 146 kph. He also throws forkballs, and the occasional cutter.

He participated as a relief pitcher for Japan's National Team in the 2013 World Baseball Classic, but was subsequently replaced after giving up a 2-run homer to Puerto Rico's outfielder Alex Rios, that ended Japan's 2-time WBC reign. On May 6 of the same year, he hit his first career solo home-run off Giant's pitcher Shoki Kasahara.
